The annual awards ceremony for Desert Hot Springs High School was held on May 16, 2017, at the high school. Many qualified students received awards from various organizations. Among the sponsors was The Parissa Labbaf Scholarship Fund, now in its sixth year.
This year’s Parissa Labbaf Scholarship recipients will receive awards of $1000 each year for fours years if they continue to qualify in a suitable four-year college program. Three students were chosen from the pool of applicants. Carla Castaneda and Celia Vega both hope to become physical therapists. Monica Herandez wants to study sociology in order to become a medical social worker.
We wish them the best of luck in achieving their goals.
